Question about CyberDrive CW088D CD-RW Burner
My CD-R/RW is not recognised in windows. I have checked device manager and the burner is listed there. when I go onto properties the following is displyed ''Windows cannot initialize the device driver for this hardware. (Code 37)'' I have tried to update driver software but nothing works
Tips for a great answer:
Click start control panel administrive tools computer
management device manager scroll to cd/dvd rom drives right click properties
then properties again then tick enable cd
digital cd audio for this cd rom device or scroll to dvd regions select
the no _ for your specific area
If this does not fix the problem you might try
Click start control panel administrive tools,computer management,device manager scroll down cd-dvd rom drives you might see a yellow question mark ? right click you will have options to update driver,roll back driver,or select properties general troubleshoot, select driver click to reinstall drivers click update driver or uninstall then reinstall if this does not fix the problem it might be a registry problem if you cant see your disk drive in windows explorer
Close all open programs
Start, Run, and type regedit and press
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders
is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the
following names in the right hand column.
If any of the above keys shown in step
4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete
After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer
Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone. or
you might have to physically unplug the leads for this cd/dvd then plug them back this should activate the found new hardware wizard or
you might have to uninstall then restart your computer then reinstall your DVD/CD then reinstall the driver for this device
if your computer came with a motherboard disk the drivers could be on it
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll down cd dvdrom drives if you see a yellow question or exclamation mark?! or a red x right click you will need to update the driver or
select properties general troubleshoot, select driver click to reinstall drivers click update driver
